Do you work in inland navigation? Inland navigation crew members must comply with new requirements. It concerns:
- Changes in training and experience requirements. These are described in Annex I of the Directive on the recognition of professional qualifications in inland navigation
- Competence requirements for boatmasters and crew members. These are described in the Official Journal of the European Union of 10.1.2020.
- The large licence (groot vaarbewijs) for boatmasters and the certificate of qualification for crew members. Boatmasters and crew members will reciev these only if they pass a theoretical as well as a practical exam. The practical examination can either be done on board a ship or on a simulator (see also Delegated Directive EU/2020/12 of the European Commission).
